Abstract

We report 7 new records of Euglenophyceae for Bahia state and 1 for Brazil. The material was collected from bromeliad phytotelmata in 4 areas of Bahia state (Serra da Jiboia, Parque das Dunas, Fazenda Itaberaba, and Reserva Sapiranga) during 14 months from 2014 to 2016. For each species, we provide the description, geographical distribution in Brazil, microhabitat conditions, and frequency of occurrence. The richness was greatest in bromeliads in the Serra da Jiboia (5 species), followed by the Parque das Dunas (3 species), Reserva Sapiranga (2 species), and Fazenda Itaberaba (1 species).
